One thing that many Disney fans get excited about when it's time for their trip is the food at the Disney parks. There's a ton of delicious treats to choose from at quick-service stations and restaurants around the parks. Some are unique to the parks while others are magical versions of normal food.

10 Dole Whip
When it comes to foods at the Disney parks, there are some that are just iconic. Even if they're also available elsewhere, they've become somewhat synonymous with the Disney parks. The Dole Whip is one of these!
The Dole Whip is a frozen dessert made of pineapple soft serve. This sweet treat is a delicious way to beat the heat at the Disney parks while having something super tasty to eat. There's also a Dole Whip Float that has pineapple juice at the bottom of the cup with the Dole Whip at the top.
9 Mickey Pretzel
Soft pretzels are a food that can be found at a lot of theme parks, sporting events, and even in the frozen aisle of grocery stores. Although they can be found at so many different places, there's something special about having even the most mundane treats in the Disney parks.
At the Disney parks, the soft pretzels have the same warm and chewy texture that we're used to tasting anywhere else. They're covered in salt to give them an extra savory taste. The most special thing about them? They're shaped like Mickey Mouse. These treats are an iconic one that can't be missed.
8 Night Blossom
The Night Blossom is a drink that was made available at the Pongu Pongu Lounge in Pandora: World of Avatar. Although this drink was only introduced semi-recently, it has already become a huge hit among Disney fans. Not only is it super bright and unique looking, but it's also delicious. What more could you ask for?
Night Blossom is layers of limeade, apple, and pear blended drink flavors that are then topped with passion fruit-flavored boba balls. The drink is cold, chewy, sweet, and sour all at once. Delicious!
Churros are a sweet treat that can be purchased at a lot of places. From fairs and carnivals to theme parks and restaurants, churros are quite common. Considering they're so tasty, we're definitely not upset about the fact that they're such a well-known sweet treat, either!
Churros are one of the most popular treats at the Disney parks and it's easy to see why. Warm and coated in cinnamon and sugar, they are hard to resist. During the different seasons, Disney even makes special seasonal churros!
6 Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich
A macaron is a sweet, light French cookie that is made by baking meringue until it forms a crispy outer shell and a "foot" at the bottom. It is super delicious. They can be made in a ton of different flavors and are typically served with jam, icing, or another filling.
The Disney parks definitely can't do anything in a boring way, so of course, they found a way to take the macaron to the next level. Disney visitors that head to L'Artisan des Glaces in the France pavilion at Epcot can pick up a fresh macaron filled with handmade ice cream in a variety of flavors. Yum!
5 Nutella Waffle Sandwich
Sleepy Hollow Refreshments in the Magic Kingdom has a variety of delicious foods for visitors to try while in the Disney parks. They've become really popular with visitors for their variety of waffle sandwiches. Some of them are savory while others are super sweet.
One of the popular waffle sandwiches at the establishment is the Nutella Waffle Sandwich. It's made with a light, fluffy waffle that has a generous coating of Nutella smeared on top. Then, sliced up pieces of fruit and berries are scattered on it. Yum!
4 The Grey Stuff
Who could forget the iconic scene in Beauty and the Beast in which the castle staff instructs Belle to "try the grey stuff, it's delicious!"? That line in Be Our Guest made all of us want to know exactly what "the grey stuff" was.
Luckily, Disney has made it into a reality. This version of The Grey Stuff can be purchased at the Red Rose Taverne, along with a lot of other Beauty and the Beast-inspired food. The Grey Stuff has a white chocolate mousse, red velvet cake, and a raspberry center.
3 Jumbo Turkey Leg
This is one food that just about everyone that has been to Disney knows about. The Jumbo Turkey Legs are a really famous Disney food that has visitors lining up in Frontierland to get their hands on one.
Although there have been rumors over the years about what goes into these Jumbo Turkey Legs, rest assured that Disney promises it's all turkey. People claim they're made of ostrich or another large bird, but Disney is quick to refute that claim. These Jumbo Turkey Legs are enormous and will run a visitor around $9, but it's totally worth it.
2 Corn Dog Nuggets
The corn dogs at the Disney parks are super popular among visitors. They're special and set themselves apart from other corn dogs at other theme parks and carnivals because of the fact that they're completely hand-dipped in the batter. Yum!
The corn dogs are delicious, but Casey's Corner has an extra special treat that every Disney visitor must try. They're called Corn Dog Nuggets and they're small, bite-size versions of the Disney corn dogs everyone knows and loves.
1 Mickey Beignets
Mickey Mouse-shaped beignets have been a staple treat at Disneyland for a long time. These sweet, airy fried treats even come in different flavors, including pumpkin spice or peppermint during the holidays. They were recently made available at Disney World, making them even more popular.
These pillowy little mounds of golden, fried dough are shaped like Mickey Mouse's head and are coated in a dusting of powdered sugar. For anyone that has a sweet tooth, picking up a plate of these is a must while at Disneyland or Disney World.
